Description

Join Paragon Sports, Salomon, and Suunto as we partner with the Appalachian Mountain Club for the FIRST Hike of our Monthly Hike Series.

All participants will get $25 gift card for each purchase of Salomon or Suunto gear purchased at Paragon Sports + 1 Paragon Sports Waterbottle.

About the Hike:

Starting from the Elk Pen Parking lot we’ll head east on the famous Appalachian Trail (AT) as we ascend Green Pond Mountain for our first great view looking south over Island Pond. We’ll then descend down for a close up view of Island Pond before the AT turns north through The Lemon Squeezer – A unique rock formation that pushes hikers through a tight path that was formed when a huge chuck of rock broke off the mountain. But don’t worry, there’s an easy way around. Our next great view will be on Island Pond Mountain where you can still see the remains of the summer shelter built by Edward Harriman. We’ll then hop on the Long Path for a quick walk down to the Arden – Surebridge Trail (A-SB). The A-SB will take us south along the east side of Island Pond and the shoulder of Surebridge Mountain before crossing over a small stream that serves as the ponds outlet. Our final viewpoint will greet us at the saddle of Green Pond Mountain. The remaining 1.5 miles will be mostly downhill back to the parking area.
